Talking New to the Forums ! Katy.

Hey Guys new at this sorta thing... Taking the MSF course in March so I wanted to familiarize myself with Bikes and rider in town. This Forum page sounds chill and everyone sounds cool so yeah!

Any suggestions on 250cc?

I was looking at the Ninja 250r
or the cbr 250!

Thanks!

I see. The main problem for me really is I like the CBR's tach display and the direct injection however, the Ninja has better styling and have been around longer. But thanks for the pics

I've been in your exact same situation for a few months! It sucks! They each have each other's cons as pros and vice versa, if you know what I mean. I went with the Ninja because it's a lot more fun, it might need more maintenance than the cbr250r but it gives an excuse for you to learn how it works and how you can fix it. All the experience will help you with your other bike.

Get a used ninja for next to nothing and then upgrade when ready. Should have no issues selling it
